The plan was to create a desk that spanned the entire wall. We dubbed it Megadesk a la Dwight on The Office.
Our Modern and Feminine Office
When you tell people you work from home or you're a blogger you get the deer in the headlights look. Wait, you do what?
Regardless, I can absolutely not think when I have distractions like Law and Order SVU marathons or toys just LITERALLY everywhere. I have enough in my brain without extra things. So, we decided to finally give our office space a very much needed makeover. We typically don't spring for feminine design. One, because I am not a girly girl but also two, because I do share this space with a very large and hairy, beard-y fellow.
We decided to makeover this space in a 6 week time span and this is what we were working with to start off:
After revealing our design board the first week, we added this incredible accent wall in week 2!
Week 3, Megadesk made her appearance and we organized the drawers and had created some SUPER easy drawer liners! It's the easiest method I've ever seen so you should really check out how we did that!
Week 5 we made over our $20 Ikea office chairs and were PUMPED with the outcome!
Week 5 was all my husband's brain child. We needed a solution to be able to move our chairs around since it's carpet up here and we didn't have the budget to completely redo the floors. So, being a genius, my husband created this faux marble chair mat with peel and stick tiles and some plywood. You can check out the full tutorial here (and you absolutely should. I seriously am in awe how genius this idea is).
We did the full reveal on week 6 and I was so pleased with the final project! I now have a space to clear my head and work on more glorious and hilarious content for you fine people!
